Dublin’s rockers Jet Fuel Chemistry have streamed their video for new single “Sleep”. This song is from their forthcoming EP “Sign of the Times”, set to be out on August 7th!
“‘Sleep’ is the second track on the EP, with a focus on the exacerbating of isolation and mental illness by social media. It’s paradoxical that the more time we spend “connected” to one another, the more alone we feel.
All in all, the world is a really chaotic and fucked up place right now. And if we’d written a release without this tone we’d feel dishonest and, frankly, there’s every chance we’d have gone insane. People need to stop vilifying each other, and instead unite to hold those with power accountable for our misery. It’s a positive message that we hope anyone can get behind.
Sign of the Times is a release this band really cares about. We painstakingly recorded and produced every second of it ourselves in one tiny bedroom. The songs explore the nature of societal fears and public hostility and, more interestingly to us, how these emotions can be exploited (or even manufactured) for gain.
Our goal was to pioneer an exciting new sound while keeping our roots in guitar-driven heavy rock. We’re passionate about the music, so naturally our lyrics address subject matter that we feel passionately about. Throughout these songs we offer our take on a series of issues with something in common – their contribution to our inevitable doom.”
